Well, well .... Raptors made it yet another close call against the weak, yet terrible high spirited Washington Wizards team. Again, too close for comfort for my liking, but that's just me.
It's funny listening to Matt and Jack talk about how fantastic our team depth is (which I don't entirely disagree with), and yet without our "franchise" we've barely kept our heads above water against two of the weakest teams in the NBA. Not something to really brag about, should we?
Look, I've for years hated to refer to Chris Bosh as our "franchise" because up until recently I didn't think he was deserving of that glorious tag. Well, I take that back now and have absolute confidence that this man is this team's franchise and moving forward if we can't re-sign Bosh this summer, then I expect the Raptors to take a step back significantly from where this team is right now. Unless they find away to wake up Hedo and better utilize his skills and abilities, life without Bosh has already been too long and frustrating to watch. If Toronto want to be contenders at all within the next couple seasons, they can only do it with Chris. Right now looking at all the feasible options for next season, I don't see how you can replace someone like Bosh at this point.
So, enough of my rant. Let's get to the "Raptors in Reverse Player of the Game". So, who stood out for you guys last night? Jack's totally 4th quarter domination? Wright's season-high 19 points off the bench? Or for the second night in a row Hedo's 14+ points in a game? Or was is "Dikembe" Bargnani's defense in the 4th quarter? (Vote at the poll)
